2.   Consignment ~ AA ~ U.S.M-3 Aerial.  Theater re-handle.  The grooves in the handle appear to have been replaced by plexiglass.  Fiber spacers at each end make me think that several mint knives were taken apart and rebuilt in the new owner’s image.  Knife and M-8 scabbard are both minty.  A very unique piece.                                                                                          $525

3.   Consignment ~ AA ~ Very early KA-BAR U.S.M.C. Mark II. Theater rehandled with plexiglass and an aluminum pommel. Full blade retains about 50% of its finish.

4.   Consignment ~ AA ~ USMC PAL MKII.  Blade shows a slight bellying at the rear from sharpening.  No grinding.  Lots of spotting on blade, but I only see a small spot of corrosion on the left side near the tip.  Handle is solid and tight with one dime size hole near the pommel.  U.S.N. marked leather scabbard is in very good condition.  LVG marked on front.                                 $235

5.   Consignment ~ AA ~ 1986 MII Gerber Anniversary Knife.  It IS made by Gerber.  It DOES have a fusel handle.  It IS a wasp waist blade (appears unsharpened).  It DOES have a wicked canted blade.  It DOES have the keeper strap coming from the right.  It IS NOT $2000!  Excellent condition. 

                                                                                                  $275

6.   Consignment ~ AA ~ Remington Mfg.1917 Bayonet.  Plated, presumably, for parade use.  Blade is full and appears unsharpened. Scabbard is original leather variety. The leather is solid but is not green, but more like black.  I do not know if this is a “parade” thing or just age.  A very unique piece. $125

7.    Consignment ~ AA ~ Vietnam Theater Knife made from Vietnam Era 1917 GEN-CUT shotgun bayonet.  Blade has been shortened to 7”.  Actually it makes a very nice knife.  Can still be attached to a 1917 rifle or a trench shotgun.  Modified M-8A1 sheath (Throat removed).  First time that I have seen one of these converted.                                                                $165

8.   Consignment ~ AA ~ Vietnam Theater/Trench Knife made using a Marbles 6” Jet Pilot blade and a P.X. 1918 handle (my opinion).  Actually makes a very interesting piece.  Very sharp blade and false edge.  Original Marbles sheath.  $575

9.   Consignment ~ AA ~ Vietnam Theater made M-7 modification to an M-3.  Reported that this was made in a Fire Support Base outside of Kontum in V.N.  Blade has been reground to a very wicked clip point.  M-8A1 sheath.  I have only seen one other of these V.N. theater made knives.            $340

11.       Consignment ~ BB ~ F/S 2nd Pattern B-2 Wilkinson Sword.  This knife is in exceptional condition with very little blackening missing at the pommel, less missing from the knurled handle.  Blade is unsharpened with about 2 % of bluing missing from the very tip.  No scratches or corrosion anywhere on the blade.  Guard retains 100% blue finish with a couple of very small marks on one side.  Black square chape and brown leather are 100% intact, as well as the elastic band.  Nicest combo that I have ever seen.            $600

12.       Consignment ~ BB ~ Model 1832 Foot Soldiers Artillery Sword by Ames.  Dated 1839.  Authenticating this sword is above my pay-grade. Even after a couple of hours on the Internet, I can say that it seems that there are more reasons to think that it is legit than to say that it is not.  Sword is in excellent condition. Blade appears to have a tiny crack just above the eagle on the ricasso.  Scabbard shows drying and cracking, but it remains very solid.  Note all of the photos and markings.  Examples online are from $1200 to $4000.        We are going with the           lower end.                                          $800

21.       Consignment ~ BB ~ WWII Era John EK Knife.  Model 1, number G192. Knife is in the original box with the original “YOUR SILENT PARTNER” handbook.  Box is serial numbered to the knife.  The other end of the box appears to be actually signed by John Ek.  (Hard to read, but it is there) and 1944.  Also the knife was apparently made for (also on box end) “Pvt. George Alexander.”  The knife was likely never delivered as it came out of the John Ek estate.  Near mint condition.  Very cool piece.         $2100

A NEW BOOK OUT ON:THE MODEL 1918 MARK 1 TRENCH KNIFE AND VARIATIONS"  by Greg Aloisio,  306 pages, hardcover large format. Many never before seen period photos with the knife being worn as well as the examination of the various makers by distinguishing differences in maker’s marks and font patterns.  (John's comment: Outstanding book for the beginning and advanced collector)

 

A NEW BOOK--"US and Allied Military Knives, M3’s and M4’s”, a new book on M3’s and M4’s is now available.

 There are almost 200 pages, with 140 full page, color photos.  This book includes all the known M3 trench knife, M6 sheath and M4 knife-bayonet variations.  It also includes descriptions of the knives and sheaths. 
 Written by Bill Walters with input from Vince Coniglio, this is the most comprehensive book to date on M3’s and M4’s.
 This book was proudly printed in the USA.
 The cost of the book is $116, including Priority Mail shipping for one book.  For those of you wanting more than one copy or residing outside the US, please contact Bill to get a shipping estimate.
 To order please contact Bill at:  billwalters1948@gmail.com  If paying with your credit card, please make payment to Paypal.  Make Paypal payments to billwalters1948@gmail.com.

 


  FAKE F/S--The following information is being presented in the hope that other collectors will not get burnt:
Fake 2nd Pattern F/S--Made to be a Free French  Variation--The 6 7/8" blade is blackened, under the black is what appears to be a copper plating or coating. The guard has a small Broad Arrow on the top side. The blackened knurled grip has a large Cross  imbedded in the knurling. The Cross is aprox 1/2" tall and 3/8" wide.  After talking with a couple friends, John Fischer and Tom Parker and re-reading a section of Ron Flook's book, I have come to the conclusion that this thing is bogus.
This additional information came from fellow collector Kerry Gordon.  (thanks Kerry)
I just thought that you might like to know that you weren't the only one ever caught with one of these - not only do I have the French version but I also have one with the Belgian Rampant Lion stamped into the hilt.

The real give away with these is that the blade tang doesn't run all the way through the pommel nut, there's about two threads empty at the end of the nut.  The other thing is that the brass pommel nuts are painted with gloss black paint rather than blackened.

Someone spent a lot of time and effort on these, the blades are tinned under the blackening and the hilts are blackened brass that is reasonable well checkered.
